Kim could tell at a glance Angel wasn't the average attractive yet poorly disguised extraterrestrial scout sent to assess Earth's defenses before the inevitable alien invasion. Angel's memory loss cover story? Lame. Robbing a passing ruffian of his shirt to cover her naked body? NOT a good way to avoid attracting attention! As a science fiction geek, Kim felt herself uniquely qualified to watch Angel and thwart her dark mission...once the alien got around to it.

  • 5 out of 5 stars
  • An absolutely different sci fi lesbian story.

didn't like the narrator at first as the free sample of the written word contained one of the funniest happenings ever! it was so funny, i laughed until i cried, and knew right then that if the rest of the book was this funny, complicatedly funny, that this book was going to be a winner, which it is!

the narrator/reader, however, didn't read the shower scene so as to make the situation come alive as one listened. this almost turned me off the audible rendition altogether, but i decided to give her rendition of the book a fair trial, so i listened to the whole book, and i must admit it, she got better -- much better which made listening to the book much more enjoyable.

great writing! highly recommending this book and looking forward to a sequel!
